with an investigator here in the united states. i see a member of parliament speak to that as well. and i see scotland yard having an investigation of over 5,000 names and several thousand phone numbers. that adds up to me to sufficient enough concern to protect the families of 9/11 and make sure that either this was not true, in which case they can have that sense of security, that their messages from those loved ones on their final days does not in any way revealed. or if it is true, that it should be prosecuted in the united states because access to phone record, unauthorized access to them is punishable under federal law. >> senator jay rockefeller says my bet is we'll find criminal stuff here. you share that view? >> well, i don't want to jump to conclusions, john, but i do want a vigorous review. i see there are some published reports that the fbi is in fact pursuing a review to determine whether a full investigation is necessary. i welcome that. that's what i asked the justice department to do. om of us that come from the new york, new jersey area, we lost several citizens on that fateful day.
